Default Ky. may temporarily reopen private prisons amid overcrowding

Ah jeez.

Ky. may temporarily reopen private prisons amid overcrowding

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet Secretary John Tilley says he is considering temporarily reopening two private prisons to ease overcrowding.

The Courier-Journal reports Kentucky stopped housing inmates in private prisons in 2013. But recent unexpected growth in the number of prisoners has left both state prisons and county jails at capacity.

While I'd love to see a multitude of State inmates moved out of county facilities, I'm not sure going back to CCA is the best option. I'd much rather see more approved parole releases
